PaWARN Public Beta?
What is PaWARN?

PaWARN is a statewide Water/Wastewater Agency Response Network (WARN) of “utilities helping utilities” to prepare for the next natural or human-caused emergency. Click here to learn more.

Why do we need PaWARN?

Water and wastewater systems provide our communities with a life-sustaining resource that is of vital importance to maintaining public health, sanitation and safety. When water and wastewater services are interrupted for extended periods of time, a community’s well-being quickly deteriorates, as evidenced by Hurricane Katrina. And without an adequate water supply, our communities are vulnerable to devastating fires. By restoring water and wastewater service in the most efficient manner possible, PaWARN provides renewed hope for fast recovery from such disasters.

How does PaWARN help?

PaWARN provides water and wastewater utilities with:
  • A Mutual Aid Agreement and process for sharing emergency resources among water and wastewater agencies statewide.
  • A mutual assistance program consistent with other statewide mutual aid and assistance programs and the National Incident Management System.
  • The resources to respond and recover more quickly from a natural or human caused disaster.
  • A forum for developing and maintaining emergency contacts and relationships.

Why Join PaWARN?

Who is more likely to have that specialized pump or valve your system needs to get back on line in a hurry? That’s right, another water or wastewater system. So join your peers in PaWARN and become part of the network dedicated to keeping our communities healthy, sanitary and safe.

Renewed hope

When water and wastewater service is restored, people have a renewed sense of hope that recovery is forthcoming!
